JCR (Jim Cook Racing) offers a supercharger for L-series engines. It is in their catolog and it is a roots-type blower that looks like it's a Whipplecharger type, not like the Paxton or Vortech type. I don't have a price but it uses a holly pro-jection to supply fuel/air mixture (pro-jection, $$$$$$). It looks very simple to install. Contact JCR at 1-800-JCR-1440
